Talking New Health info to share

Something that I got in an email thought to share with all of you.

Have a great day!
_---------------------------------------

Did You Know That? Drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve
headache pain almost immediately -- without the unpleasant side
effects caused by traditional "pain relievers."

Did you know that Colgate toothpaste makes an excellent salve for
burns.

Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with
mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong
Altoids peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.

Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 Tablespoon of horseradish in
1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as
a massage oil, for instant relief for aching muscles.

Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take
1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two
tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms.
Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost
instantly -- even though the product was never been advertised for this
use. (Note: Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine is not the same..and
contains aspirin, which can cause stomach bleeding if you have ulcers.)

Honey remedy for skin blemishes... Cover the blemish with a dab of
honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the
skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.

Listerine therapy for toenail fungus... Get rid of unsightly
toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful
antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again.

Easy eyeglass protection... To prevent the screws in eyeglasses from
loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear nail polish to
the threads of the screws before tightening them.

Coca-Cola cure for rust... Forget those expensive rust removers. Just
saturate an abrasive sponge with Coca Cola and scrub the rust stain. The
phosphoric acid in the coke is what gets the job done.

Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer... If menacing bees, wasps,
hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the
insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground
instantly.

Smart splinter remover...just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the
splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter
sticks to the dried glue.

Hunt's tomato paste boil cure....cover the boil with Hunt's tomato
paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and
bring the boil to a head.

Balm for broken blisters...To disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few
drops of Listerine ... a powerful antiseptic.

Heinz vinegar to heal bruises... Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar
and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness
and speeds up the healing process.

Kills fleas instantly. Dawn dish washing liquid does the trick. Add a
few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse
well to avoid skin irritations. Goodbye fleas.

Rainy day cure for dog odor... Next time your dog comes in from the
rain, simply wipe down the animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet,
instantly making your dog smell springtime fresh.

Eliminate ear mites... All it takes is a few drops of Wesson corn oil
in your cat's ear. Massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat
daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites,
and accelerates healing.

Quaker Oats for fast pain relief....It's not for breakfast anymore! Mix
2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the
microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your
hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.

Interesting stuff! Thanks.

I used an orange kitchen counter spray cleaner on my pantry shelves to kill those little ants that invade in the summer. It works! If I spotted one on the counter, I'd spritz it and it stopped in its tracks. I feel that is so much safer on food areas.

I also clean with water and vinegar. It's wonderful for floors, windows (with a drop or two of dawn), everywhere. I don't want to expose myself or my family (well most of them anyway) to all those chemicals.

I had no luck with the orange spray for ants last summer. Those little buggers were tenacious!

I ended up using Terro ant traps, but they are food-safe -- they are simply corn syrup with borax. It won't harm people or pets, but it sure took care of those ants.

Man, LiamFan, I need a new gif. I'm sad to say I'm no longer hooked, as you know. I still love "Seth" though. Do you think the writers read these boards? They must be doing *something* during the hours they are supposed to be coming up with clever, witty, twisted plots.

WHAT HAPPENED???

um...this is bad for my physical health.
